Behold, The Ides of March


We’re still two weeks early for the actual ides of March but, thanks to The Oxford Press (and reader Josh Kiger), we’ve got a few shots of the set of George Clooney’s The Ides of March film.

An adaptation of the Beau Willimon play, the film is set during the Iowa primary of a presidential race and follows a young press spokesman who falls prey to backroom politics, the treacherous manipulations of veteran operatives and the seduction of a young intern.

Clooney (who also directs) plays Governor Morris, a candidate running in the presidential primary race for the Democratic Party ticket. Ryan Gosling plays his press spokesman with Paul Giamatti as a rival campaign manager. The film is also set to star Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood and Max Minghella and, while there’s no official release date scheduled, it will presumably be targeted in conjunction with 2012 election.
